There were two guys in my little town that were outstanding painters, well-respected for their craft. Glenn Rankin and Dale Brick were their names, they have now passed on to that great Paint warehouse in the sky. I followed behind much of their work, 10, 20, 30 years after they had painted a home.......their skill level was top notch. They often used OIL-based velvet finish on walls and they were just indestructible. I just re-did one of their homes, painted in 1969 and never touched until now. Just a remarkable finish that held up for 50, yes, 50 years!!!
Ah, that's when paint was paint, no primer in one. Painter's were Painter's and Men were Men!
